HYDERABAD: AP Assembly Speaker Kodela Siva Prasada Rao’s daughter-in-law K Padmapriya on Wednesday filed a habeas corpus petition in the Hyderabad High Court seeking directions to the police to produce her four-year-old son before the court.
Padmapriya, in her petition, submitted that her estranged husband Siva Ramakrishna along with some others and police have barged into her father’s house in Visakhapatnam and took away her son K Goutham on Sept 17. A complaint was lodged with the III Town police station in Vizag and the police registered a case under IPC Sections 498-A (harassment), 363 (kidnapping) and 441 (tresspassing).
However, no action was taken by the police to rescue her kidnapped son. The police desisted from including the name of SHO Mallikarjun Rao, a police officer, who accompanied her husband while taking away her son, she added.
Padmapriya said that she got married to Siva Ramakrishna in 2009 but she has been staying separately at her father’s house in Vizag for the last one year with her son due to problems with her husband.
